§ 103. Mr. G. Thomas
asked the Minister of Education what total cuts she made in the estimated expenditure by Welsh local education authorities for the year 1953–54.
§ Miss Horsbrugh
Local education authorities in Wales as in England are 273W expected to exercise economy in expenditure in accordance with Circulars 242 and 245. They have not been required to submit estimates of their expenditure for 1953–54 for my approval and there has, therefore, been no question of my making cuts in their estimates.
